In this paper the influence of one of phytosterols, namely β-sitosterol on cholesterol (Chol)/phosphatidylcholine (PC)/ganglioside (GM3) monolayers was examined to find the correlation between the properties of model system and the effect of phytocompound. The studied monolayers differed in condensation...
